  • Fish on

    Fish on

    “Fish onnnnnnn!” Dylan cheers from the backseat of the Nissan Pathfinder. In front of us are our kind-of new friends and we’re on the way to Rye to try some surf fishing. Well, the boys will, anyway. I packed Toni Lodge’s latest book, “I Don’t Need Therapy (and other lies I have told myself)” to…

  • Going out of town and re-energizing for the week

    Going out of town and re-energizing for the week

    Last weekend, C and I went with our friends to Tagaytay and did nothing but eat, drink some good wine and beer and alcohol, play The Resistance (which messed with our friendship so bad), and meet some work deadlines. The weather was so cold (Manila standard of measurement) and the place was so very beautiful.…

  • Dinner with friends at Yabu: House of Katsu

    Dinner with friends at Yabu: House of Katsu

    C and I met up with Angelica and Kasey to have some dinner at Yabu: House of Katsu (2nd Floor Atrium, Megamall). I work in Ortigas but I didn’t even know of the restaurant until Kasey texted raving about it. After reading Carina’s blog entry about it, I became more excited to eat there! (Although…

  • Midnight Mercato

    Midnight Mercato

    Don’t get me wrong. I don’t mind pigging out, but 10PM – 12MN is really not the healthiest time to go for a food-trip, unless, well, you have the metabolism of a hyperactive 10-year-old (or if you exercise regularly). Which I just obviously don’t. So I just try to watch what I eat (and how…

  • Zao Vietnamese Bistro at Eastwood

    Zao Vietnamese Bistro at Eastwood

    Last Friday, I had dinner with Gail (Lles caught up later in the evening) and for some reason, the only time I get to eat Vietnamese food was when I’m with Gail. The first time was when I accompanied her to shop for clothes, and the second time was last week. We originally wanted to…

  • In the Heights in Manila

    In the Heights in Manila

    I watched In the Heights (Manila, by Atlantis Productions) last night with C and a couple of friends. The play’s about these characters living in Washington Heights — immigrants mostly, who are in a poor community but struggles to get by and dreams of moving upward. C has made me listen to the music from the…

  • Sonic-screwdriving the Godzilla Burrito

    Sonic-screwdriving the Godzilla Burrito

    I went with some friends to Greenhills last night where we sonic-ed the Godzilla Burrito from Ristras Mexican Grill (J. Abad Santos corner Lopez Jaena, San Juan). I’m not that big a fan of burritos (because I prefer my rice soft), but hey, I wouldn’t mind trying out a giant burrito with a couple of friends.…

  • The little things in life

    The little things in life

    It’s been a job-free week (by that I mean, no freelance jobs) so I had time to do a few things with friends, some things for myself, and despite the week being low-key and not as exciting as stress-filled ones, I still enjoyed those moments I spent time with people I love.

  • When birthdays are actually fun

    When birthdays are actually fun

    I feel like I’m making up for lost time whenever I go out with my high school friends during these past few months. One of my regrets from college was always being “busy with orgstuff” that I wasn’t able to properly hang out with Gail, Lles, and Ruby. I never got to sleep over much,…
